      IAFF to Add 168 Fallen IAFF Members to Wall of Honor

      Watch the ceremony here.

      At this year’s memorial service, the IAFF will add 168 fallen fire fighters from the United States and Canada to the Wall of Honor.

      The IAFF members being honored this year died in the line of duty between June 1, 2013, and June 1, 2014. In addition, IAFF members who died prior to June 1, 2013, but were reported during the past year, also will be honored.

      The IAFF and Colorado Springs Local 5 are committed to making the Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial ceremony an uplifting experience for the families, friends and loved ones that celebrates the lives, dedication and accomplishments of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

      A complete list of fallen fire fighters to be added to the Wall of Honor is here.

      With the addition this year of 168 fallen fire fighters who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Wall of Honor will include 2,976 members who have died in the line of duty since 1976.

      This year marks the final ceremony before the planned reconstruction of the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial. Click here for more information or to make a donation.

      MDA CEO Steven Derks last week called on General President Harold Schaitberger to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

      Of course General President Schaitberger accepted, joining the viral campaign to help fight and find a cure for ALS and other muscular diseases.

      With help from Local 36 and the crew of Engine 23, Schaitberger – in his dark blue suit – took on three five-gallon buckets of ice water just outside IAFF headquarters. Watch as he calls on all of the IAFF leadership to help the cause and take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

      The Delegates at the 50th IAFF Convention passed Resolution #23 "Our Good Name" which applies to the use of the IAFF Logo.

      This resolution condemns the act of ordering or applying this union’s good name in the form of the IAFF Logo, the letters IAFF or the words “International Association of Fire Fighters” to any piece of apparel or merchandise that is not UNION made, or is made outside of the United States of America or Canada.

      Union Shop Apparel is one of the only organizations within North America that fully complies with Resolution #23.  All of the employees at Union Shop Apparel are members of IUPAT Local 820.  We invite you to visit their website and checkout their new Online Store.  They specialize in Custom Embroidery and Silk Screening.
